Dour Germans?

Jump to last reply

I just got back from a trip to Vienna and Krakow. That is somewhat incidental to my post, really, but here goes anyway.

While in Krakow we were in a cafe next to 5 middle aged German couples who stopped in from some coffee and sweets. One woman had a laugh that was so infectious and hearty that it just had to make you smile - one of the top 5 most "joyous" sounding laughs I have ever heard. The whole group was having such a good time, I was tempted to ask them if I could join them for dinner.

The experience made me think back to a video I saw last year, that I think should help put the notion of dour or "humourless" Germans to rest. That has never been my experience in my many travels to Germany. Hey, people are people, and there is joy and sorrow everywhere. May we all be so lucky as to find bits of it like this in our travels.

If you haven't seen it, I hope you enjoy the link. If you have, you will probably want to see it again. Either way, I dare you not to laugh;
